Fires often start small, but given the right conditions to thrive, a fire can quickly spread out of control, often in a matter of minutes. This can produce catastrophic and, ultimately, tragic results. That’s why if you discover an active fire, you must evaluate the situation quickly.

In the case of small, controlled fires, you can put it out yourself with a fire extinguisher, provided you know how to handle one. However, you should never underestimate the danger. If you’re not sure if you can contain it, prioritize your safety and call your local Fire Department immediately.

Pride Cleaning & Restoration is a fire damage restoration company serving home and business owners in the greater St Louis area.

Fires can cause significant damage to buildings, homes and personal belongings, including furniture, electronics and other valuable items. The damage can range from minor smoke damage to complete destruction of property, making it challenging to assess the extent of the damage and determine what needs to be cleaned or replaced.

The fire damage restoration process can be incredibly complex. That’s because fires can damage properties in many different ways. After a fire, a property may be structurally unstable, and there may be hidden hazards, such as sharp debris or chemicals, requiring careful handling.

In addition, the toxic fumes, hot smoke and soot migrate to the cooler, upper areas of a structure. Smoke can flow through plumbing systems, using holes around pipes to go from floor to floor.

As construction materials, solvents, glues and other items in the structure break down, this may also produce some very toxic chemicals, posing serious health risks to individuals involved in the cleanup.

Finally, water from firefighting efforts can also seep into walls, floors and ceilings, leading to water damage, mold growth and other issues complicating the cleanup process.

At Pride Cleaning & Restoration, we have extensive experience in handling damage caused by the flames themselves, as well as the smoke, soot and other typical consequences of fire.


With damage and consequences potentially so diverse, it’s important to have trained fire damage technicians present on-site as soon as possible.
